I fell in love with Cumberland Island when we were on our sailing adventure. We anchored here two separate times visiting the beach and hunting for sharks’ teeth. The last 3 years we have attempted to come back and camp, but it hasn’t worked out due to storms so we were super excited it was a go this year. It also worked out that two families from home were going as well so we were able to catch up with friends in such a beautiful place.
The Sea Camp campsite is .5 miles from the ferry drop (other primitive sites are available on the island). Carts ($5 each) are available for rent to transport your gear across the island to the Sea Camp site and back to the dock. Potable water, cold-water showers and bathrooms are located at this campsite. It was quite warm when we were there so the cold-water showers were amazing. The bugs were not bad and the weather was perfect for swimming. Wildlife was abundant and we saw raccoons (they are very skillful getting into food!), armadillos, dear, horses, red-headed woodpeckers, sharks and ghost crabs. We found a handful of sharks teeth and a great time was had by all.
